A Love Supreme, John Coltrane A Love Supreme by John Coltrane ranked # 47 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list.

A Love Supreme is a jazz album recorded by John Coltrane's quartet on December 9, 1964 at the Van Gelder studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. The album is a four-part suite, broken up into tracks called "Acknowledgement" (which contains the famous mantra that gave the suite its name), "Resolution", "Pursuance", and "Psalm". It is intended to be a spiritual album, broadly representative of a personal struggle for purity. The final track, "Psalm", uniquely corresponds to the wording of a devotional poem Coltrane included in the liner notes.

An alternative version of "Acknowledgement" was recorded the next day on December 10. This version included tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp and bassist Art Davis. The sole live performance of the "Love Supreme" suite from a 1965 performance in Antibes, France, was also remastered and released by Impulse! Records with the original album and additional outtakes.

A Love Supreme is usually listed among the greatest jazz albums of all time. It was ranked eighty-second in a 2005 survey held by British television's Channel 4 to determine the 100 greatest albums of all time. The elements of harmonic freedom heard on this album indicated the changes to come in Coltrane's music.
